Researchers show the BEST way to reduce osteoporosis risk

It's one of the first demonstrations on how to take care of your bones since the Surgeon General warned that half the population is likely to be at risk for osteoporosis unless they take action. Experts are putting prevention on display today at a fitness center in midtown Manhattan. Leaders in fitness and nutrition are demonstrating exactly how participants in the BEST Study, a four-year investigation conducted at the University of Arizona (UA), improved their bone mineral density (BMD) using two essentials: calcium and weight-bearing exercise. Specially-trained Bally fitness instructors are showing the bone building techniques to exercisers of all ages.

Data from the UA Bone Estrogen Strength Training (BEST) Study showed that a regimen of twice-a-day calcium citrate supplementation (Citracal) and three-times weekly resistance training improved bone density in postmenopausal women whether or not they took estrogen. Findings presented at the October meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) demonstrated that the amount of weight lifted by calcium-supplemented women can be predictive of bone health.

Bone Health Specialists Urge Action
Today, Miriam Nelson, PhD, author of the Strong Women book series, will join study investigators from the UA Center for Physical Activity and Nutrition, Timothy Lohman, PhD, Center director and Lauve Metcalfe, intervention coordinator who, along with Bally fitness trainer Nikki Kimbrough and her expert team, will coach guests in the BEST way to improve bone health and help prevent osteoporosis. In remarking on the results of the BEST Study, Dr. Nelson said, "Bone health improved. No one had to eat differently--they just took calcium citrate supplements to ensure adequate intake--and did the weight bearing workouts. They all increased their fracture resistance."

The findings of the BEST Study provide evidence on how nutrition and exercise can help make bone health a real
